The Utilities & Engineering Department at the City of Columbia kicked off Storm Drain Making Month on April 6, 2016. Storm Drain Marking Month runs throughout the month of April. Both the City and the County will be sending out neighborhood volunteers to place markers on storm drains as part of the month-long campaign.
Water that flows into storm drains does not get treated or cleaned. Any pollutants that go into a storm drain flow directly into our waterways. These stormwater pollutants negatively affect water quality for people, fish, and animals.
